Syllabus overlap information

In the first year of any new Practical syllabus, candidates can for a limited period choose to perform pieces set in the lists of the preceding syllabus, but they can't combine pieces from the preceding and new syllabus (except in the case of items that appear in both).

No such overlap period applies to any new scale requirements, sight-reading and/or aural tests, which take effect from 1 January of their year of introduction.

In 2019, candidates can play set pieces from the 2017 & 2018 syllabus as follows:

  • UK & Republic of Ireland – until the end of Period A (spring exams) 2019
  • All other countries – until 31 December 2019

Guitar 2009–2018

In 2019, candidates can play set pieces from the 2009–2018 syllabus as follows:

  • UK & Republic of Ireland – until the end of Period A (spring exams) 2019
  • All other countries – until 31 December 2019

This same overlap period also applies to the Prep Test.
